Course: Soup
Cuisine: Greece
Keyword: feta cheese


  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 4 cup water
  • 1 cup sour trahana
  • 6 oz feta cheese crumbled
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • salt to taste optional


  • Melt butter in a medium-sized pot over medium-high heat until lightly browned (be sure to keep a close eye on it, so it doesn't burn).
  • Stir in the water, trahana, and a pinch of salt.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for fifteen minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent the trahana from sticking to the bottom. The trahana will absorb a lot of the water and will be soft.
  • Add the milk and feta and cook for an additional five minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove from heat and let rest for five minutes.
  • Taste and add more salt if necessary.
